Instead of sending a letter to Steve Linick, Inspector General for the Department of State, demanding he investigates whether any Department of State officials worked with President Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, to advance President Trump’s political activities…
perhaps Kamala Harris should have sent a letter to Inspector General of the Intelligence Community, Michael K. Atkinson, demanding he investigates whether the whistleblower worked with any members or employees of the House of Representatives or non-governmental lawyers prior to submitting their whistleblower complaint – and who specifically wrote the complaint in the form of a lawyers brief, complete with legal references, footnotes, and appendices. And, as a good measure, whether or not the whistleblower, who is allegedly a current or former CIA employee was associated with Obama-appointed former CIA Director John Brennan or his associates, the DNC, or the Clintons?
From: U.S. Senator Kamala Harris
Harris Demands Inspector General Investigate Any State Department Officials Working with Rudy Giuliani
On Thursday, I sent a letter to Steve Linick, Inspector General for the Department of State, demanding he investigate whether any Department of State officials worked with President Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, to advance President Trump’s political activities.
An August 12, 2019 complaint by an Intelligence Community whistleblower details the multiple efforts by President Trump and Mr. Giuliani to pressure Ukrainian officials to provide information to damage a political opponent and boost the president’s political prospects.
These efforts are an abuse of the power of the presidency and a threat to the integrity of our democratic government.
Let's be clear about one thing. President Trump is a lawless president. His administration reeks of corruption. It reeks of self-service.
If any officials at the State Department worked with Rudy Giuliani to advance Trump's political activities, then the American people need to know about it. That's why I'm demanding the State Department's Inspector General open an investigation.
We must continue to seek the truth - our democracy depends on it.
Adding to the drama – and protecting the faux whistleblower from further scrutiny…
[OCS: NOTHING LIKE WIDELY PUBLICIZING A THREAT AND MAKING IT MORE DANGEROUS FOR YOUR CLIENT – IS THIS MALPRACTICE?]
Tonight, "60 Minutes" has obtained a letter that indicates the government whistleblower who set off the impeachment inquiry of President Trump is under federal protection, because he or she fears for their safety. These rapidly developing events began Tuesday when Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi ordered the investigation based on a phone call between Mr. Trump and the president of Ukraine. President Volodymyr Zelensky asked Mr. Trump for missiles, Mr. Trump asks Zelensky for "a favor" to investigate Mr. Trump's Democratic rivals.
The events of the past week have heightened our concerns that our client's identity will be disclosed publicly and that, as a result, our client will be put in harm's way.
On September 26, 2019, the President of the United States said the following:
I want to know who's the person that gave the Whistleblower, who's the person that gave the Whistleblower the information, because that's dose to a spy. You know what we used to do in the old days when we were smart? Right? With spies and treason, right? We used to handle them a little differently than we do now.
The fact that the President's statement was directed to "the person that gave the Whistleblower the information" does nothing to assuage our concerns for our client's safety. Moreover, certain individuals have issued a $50,000 "bounty" for "any information" relating to our client's identity.
Unfortunately, we expect this situation to worsen, and to become even more dangerous for our client and any other whistleblowers, as Congress seeks to investigate this matter.

When the Trump/Russia collusion ploy failed and the obstruction of justice ploy failed, it appears the Democrats trumped-up (pun intended) the Ukraine ploy – which is also doomed to failure. It seems that the Democrats need a constant investigation into a scandal to distract from the real problems facing individual Democrats and the party apparatus.
The whistleblower is not a protected CIA asset, so why is the mainstream media so reluctant to leak their name -- never stopped them before?
Nothing like publicizing Trump and portraying him as the underdog in the 2020 race towards socialism.
We are so screwed.
